Achalasia is a rare disorder that is present when food and liquid are not able to move down your esophagus into your stomach. The muscle between your esophagus and your stomach called the lower esophageal sphincter (LES) relaxes and contracts when food is being pushed through. When you have achalasia, the LES doesn’t relax, so that prevents the food and liquid from getting to your stomach.
